. >> -- one of the real nemesis of the obama administration, chris christie, rejected the stimulus package that would have connected manhattan with his state, which was big commerce. he fired 6,000 teachers, he attacked public unions, he vilifies workers all the time if they're on a wage and looking for something more. and now here he is, cozying up to the president in a time of crisis. explain it. >> well, you can use all sorts of political explanations, like, you know, it would be easier for him to run for president at the end of an obama second term than it would be at the end of a romney second term, or that this helps them to get re-elected as governor of new jersey, but i choose to see it in a more sincere fashion. this is a government whose state is in deep trouble, my state. >> there are a lot of people hurting. and so this really isn't about politics. it's about trying to use government for its, really, its highest purpose, which is to help people when they're in trouble. and as a northeastern republican, who is understands, as mitt romney did, when he was governor of massachusett
used to be required to work to be on the program. the obama administration eliminated that. they've changed the rules and that has allowed many, many people in. a big example i'd like to look at is unmarried people. for some strange reason, unmarried people have fallen much farther below unemployment than married people. they have a lot better access to these programs. >> have the work requirements been removed, casey? is that a problem? the work requirements? is it too easy to go on safety net programs? >> that would be one of a dozen things that has happened. that's one of the factors. >> may i respectfully interject here? i don't know what professor mulligan is talking about. there's still three people looking for every job opening. when you have three people looking for every job opening you want to have safety nets there for people. it's not only fogood for the people but puts money in their pockets to buy things and keeps other people employed. this is economics 101. >> now there are millions of people who can make just as much by not working. that's a bad situation. >> i w
to address the panel. you know have six prosecutions in the obama administration after three prior to -- after three prior prosecutions. you now have a press that is not just the new york times, not just the "washington post," but wikileaks, individuals no longer needing the mainstream media to put documents, formerly classified documents into the public environment. so it is a changing landscape on both sides. different kind of media and i think a different attitude in government, at least that is what appears to us. the rise and concerns about terrorism and then the concern for government secrecy, and the ability to transfer large amounts of data electronically. you know, if you think back to the pentagon papers, daniel ellsworth has to come to the new york times or a paper like the new york times to get the secret's out, and that was the only way to make them public, not so now. when the government wanted to do terrible things, they actually had to send people to break into his psychiatrist office. no longer necessary. they now have other tools for doing those kinds of things. i
implication that the barack obama administration has. when i listen to these republicans, they're despicable. they practice all types of obstacles in front of this man. they lie. romney is a serial liar. host: let's go back to the economy. talk to me about the comparisons in your mind about the u.s. economy and overseas economy and why your optimism is, in fact, or, as you say, based on how our economy is doing versus economies from overseas. >> well, relatively speaking, when you take a look at some of the european economies, particularly some of the cutbacks in government and all it did was fire the economy up into a worse situation, when you take a look at france, they elected a new president there, and he's trying to implement the same type of progressive policies that the obama administration has done. it's clear that stimulus has worked despite the distortions about it. it appears this appears to be working in some other parts of europe. therefore, i think when you take a relative view of it, and you understand that we're recovering from the deepest recession since the depression, i me
that, public-private partnerships. something the obama administration is in talking about for a number of years. a small amount of seed money from the government that brings in a lot of private money sitting on the sidelines, that's looking for investments in things that pay longer-term. toll roads is a classic example. so we do far less than we could do an infrastructure as we don't have appropriate structures. you do see interesting things happening. i mean, new york is set up an infrastructure bank to do with the state level was not at the federal level. chicago, mayor emmanuel announced the launch of a $7 infrastructure project in chicago, again to bring private money sitting on the sidelines. so that's a very good example of what can be done. the u.s. is losing ground on a lot of key components of infrastructure and for understandable reasons. governments don't have an awful lot of money. so if you're waiting on the line on government appropriations in government borrowing for infrastructure investments, that is not the best way forward in the current environment. so that's a very
to jail. >> stephanie: and ben, reassure my listeners, because it seems like the obama administration has pretty much been all over this. obviously we have won at the courthouse in pretty much every state, in this wisconsin one, they wrote there are certainly concerns under wisconsin law, take all necessary steps to protect the rights of our voters. it seems like the obama team is really on the ball on this am i right? >> yes, [ inaudible ] has done a great job of frankly rebuilding a function that had been almost completely decimated by the bush administration, but we have seen since 2000 secretaries of state across the country, hyperpartism, and engaging in behavior that is anti-democratic, and goes against the spirit and the express purpose of their positions. >> stephanie: yeah. ben, absolutely, too many people have died for this right. do not let them take away your right to vote. tell people where they can go to find out the rights in their state. >> folks can go to naacp.org and text v-o-t-e to 6227 and get it that way. and you are so right. and that's one
. obama did describe the events as an act of terror twice. some officials of the obama administration suggested that the united states had no indication that it was a planned assault. did you have any response to that? guest: i would point out that, several times the obama situation pointed to it being a protest that got out of hand. i do believe that the white house was not straight forward with the american people from the beginning. host: florida, on our independent line. caller: question to the chair person -- and why did the candidates go into the michigan or ohio area and to make a statement about relocating to china? and never retracted the statement or put out anything from his committee. every time he makes a misstatement, he never comes back and tries to correct it to explain the coup methodology behind that? guest: biden not get that question. -- i did not get that question. host: he had concerns he was raising about the truth telling of that. guest: i think it is clear that the president has not been a firm with china. we have copyrights and trademarks being piloted with c
it overreads -- i mean, look, there's no question that the obama administration is both trying to do right by policy and governance and by politics the week out from an election. we've heard you guys on the show the last couple days where this is a place where good government rhymes with good politics. it's not trying to elbow its way into new york at the statue of liberty. they're saying hey, you guys want us to come? we'll be there. governor christie thinks it's good for his state. he doesn't want a political backdrop either. but he wants to get help for the people of his state. mayor bloomberg has been obviously disappointed with obama, but also disagreed with romney on almost everything and has been public on both fronts. i think mayor bloomberg is focused, as jim suggested, on trying to get the city lit up and online and maybe it's more of a pain to have the president logistically than anything else. >> that may be true. >> i think you muddied things up. >> really? >> i'm not sure that people that are watching -- >> i've muddied things up. >> -- don't think that i believe the presiden
of ohio, john kasich, is tying to contribute anything that is positive to his administration as opposed to that of barack obama. >> that we have seen. jim, thank you so much. >> thank you. >>> an update now on sandy. the u.s. navy is helping with the cleanup of the jersey shore while more than 3 million people are still without power. anger is building at the gas pumps in new jersey. line res long. stations are running out of gas. in staten islands, residents are begging for help saying they have been forgotten. a special relief fund is being set up just for residents of the island. and transportation secretary ray la hood is heading to new jersey to talk to officials there about getting the transportation system back up and running. >>> time for the your business entrepreneur of the week. jess carney worked boston area renaissance fairs, haunted houses and nightclubs. he hopped selling bone skulls and other mccobb items. carney hook, engages and sells for performance and mirror potential customer temperaments. for more, watch "your business" sunday morning on msnbc the. email marketing
k35i7b events. u.s. government has nonemergency federal workers granted administrative leave on monday due to hurricane. president obama declared a state of emergency for the commonwealth of massachusetts as a result of hurricane sandy. u.s. federal offices in d.c. closed. philadelphia, the southeast pennsylvania transit authority, septa as its called, will suspend all services at the end of the sunday service. listening, they're not playing around, if you're in any of these areas, you need to listen to what your officials are telling us. george howell is in kill devil hills, north carolina. george, you have been out there all day. tell me how the weather has intensified. >> reporter: don, i can tell you right now we are actually getting a break in the wind. the winds are dying down a bit, but they are also shifting. we can tell that's happening, and that strong rain is backing off, but this storm continues to move to the north and it is changing hour by hour. here within the last few hours we've been in touch with emergency management officials here in dare county just to fi
talk about the mainstream media coverage this week. i love what you said. you said if obama had been as clueless pandering and flop sweaty as romney in this foreign debate pundits around the country would have said they would have covered a romney administration. since the demonstration won, most would say romney didn't do too badly. that's bull crap. romney lost big time. he acted like sarah palin, a talking point machine who couldn't string together a proposition or a thought. he looked like nixon on meth sputtering useless and [ bleep ] so sweaty. it was a disaster and you're right. there is still this false equivalency in the mainstream media, isn't there? >> exactly. if obama flops everybody's talking about it. this gets back to what we talked about last week. if a democrat flops democrats are willing to say okay, we screwed up. but if a republican flops, it is immediately circle the wagons and we're certainly not going to spin this in any way other than the greatest triumph that anyone has ever had at a de
christie, who toured the damage along with fema administrator craig fugate and president obama. one man, iowa congressman, steve king, thinks fema has a fever. >> i want to get them the resources that are necessary to lift them out of this water and this sand and the ashes and the death that's over there in the east coast and especially in the northeast. but not one big shot that just opens up the checkbook, because they spent it on gucci bags and massage parlors and everything you can think of in addition to what was necessary. >> congressman king, who is up for re-election, seems to be echoing the sentiments of some of his republican, including senator lynndie graham who said, quote, we can't borrow money every time something goes wropg in america and ron paul who asks, quote, why should people like myself, who not too long ago had a house on a gulf coast, it's expensive, risky and dirngous. why should somebody from the central part of the united states rebuild my house? after all, fema represents big government. gucci bag and trip to the massage parlor would be tops on your list if y
-- >> president obama has created jobs, particularly in ohio where we restored the auto industry. no one can take that away from this past administration, but what they can attribute to governor romney is let them go bankrupt, and also a misleading and distorting ad that tells not the truth but a distortion of that which is so unfair. they will vote the truth and the truth will set them free, and they will vote november 6th and be free. >> excellent, thanks so much to both of you. i appreciate it. of course, the drum beat carries on. just three days to go until election day. many discussions to be had before folks in large numbers hopefully make it to the polls. thanks so much to both of you. appreciate. >>> it's canceled for the first time in 42 years. talking about sunday's new york city marathon. critics were afraid the race would hurt the sandy recovery efforts. now runners have turned their attention from the race to those most in need.

businessmen. on the administration side, the numbers are proof we are continuing to heal and the slight up tick is an adjustment that comes from calculations that include more people entering the work force. president obama speaking just moments ago in hilliard ohio. >> obama: we have made real progress, but we are here today because we know we have more work to do. >> remember when mitt romney went to london and insulted the english? now he's proving he doesn't even have to be in the country to of fen it. romney asked the crowd if we were on the road to looking like greece, or italy, or spain. the under secretary fired back. and he says romney has no knowledge of what is going on in europe, and any comparison is a rookie error from someone who has never ruled before. >> and never been to italy clearly. >> so he is managing to be an equal opportunity offender both here and abroad. we'll be right back after the break. ♪ our country's future depends on you. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. take the time
